Donna was awesome! She handled 75-100 people for 80's themed 50th birthday party with zero problems. Very professional, friendly and fun. Worked hard all night keeping up on all of the small things you sometime take for granted like trash, cups and dishes on tables, etc. Extremely well prepared and knowledgable. I would highly recommend her. 👍

Hired a Doc McStuffins character visit for a birthday party along with balloon animals and face painting. Service was professional, on time, and accompanied by excellent communication of the terms and details. Highly recommend.

Wow, what a SPATASTIC birthday party!! I contracted with Lili Marie with their Spa Party Package for a birthday party for my granddaughter. Eleven 7 year old girls that had an absolute fantastic time. The girls loved it and the mothers who attended were impressed too. Everything went off like clock work. I have heard that four of the mothers have already booked party's as well. Manicures, facials, robes, decorated spa sandals (to take home), cupcake tower...the list goes on.

Meg was an absolute DELIGHT to work with. My husband and I both live in Orlando but most of my family lives in the Chicago suburbs so we had to plan this long distance and we had a lot of our wedding party travel from out of town. Not only does Meg offer a personalized ceremony but she was able to whip everyone into shape and delegate duties to our wedding party. I would recommend Meg to anyone that wishes to get married. She is the absolute best and we are lucky we found her!!!

I could not be more pleased that I chose Sarah to help me plan my daughter's birthday party. From the very beginning, she was very professional, had great communication throughout, detail oriented and was genuinely as excited planning my party as I was. She was very good about keeping to our budget with all her recommended vendors and coordinated with each vendor the equipment, services provided and timeline. The morning of the party, I was ready to conquer the million decorations that had to go up, setting up of the tables, and communicating with the vendors as they came in for our 120 guest party in my backyard. But my daughter had a fever and was miserable (something no one prepares for) so my focus was shifted to her the whole day. Sarah's team took care of everything before and during the party while I took care of my daughter and greeted the guests. The birthday party was a success and a large part of that was because of Sarah and her team. I give them my highest recommendation and will be hiring them for all future events.

Vibrant Moments is the absolute best!! I had the pleasure of their services for my husband's surprise 50th birthday party this past weekend. The room was beautifully decorated. Every detail was beautiful and exactly what I wanted. My coordinator Mrs. Shaniqua Gordon was in full control of the event. She made sure I did not have to worry about a thing. There were no problems at all. From the moment we surprised my husband until the time we left the party we had an absolute ball! The guest were profoundly impressed. My husband is still talking about his surprise party, and how well it was coordinated. He informed me that this was the best party he has ever had! I will most definitely be calling on Vibrant Moments again in the near future. I will tell everyone that Vibrant Moments is what they need for a successful event, bravo! Latricia Bradford

    Yanni, is the best when it comes to events. She did my Mothers 60th b-day party and did a amazing job, I used her for my cousins baby shower and she did start to finish coordinating for both from finding the venue, to decor,waitstaff to menu. Yanni and her staff show up and show out and always exceed my expectations. Will always use her for my events

    We interviewed several planners for our special event, but we just really clicked with Maria. Her laid back personality balanced out our high strung personalities. She was beyond helpful throughout the entire planning process. Maria definitely pays attention to detail, she always got back to us immediately and there was not a question she could not answer. She made what would normally be a stressful time...stress free and fun! I strongly recommend her for all your events! Thank you again, Maria!

    Creating memories just did the birthday party celebration for my 10-year-old few weeks ago . The job they did was outstanding .first, say had great concepts/ideas that were extremely entertaining for group of 10-year-old kids who as we know may be tough crowds and difficult to impress these days. we had treasure hunt in the public park and it turned out 10 times better than I imagined it to be . The hunting items, the stories, all the clues were created and executed by creating memories . Second, execution was flawless . Girls arrived at the park hours before me and my guests, set up everything, and guarded all the locations . They went way above and beyond of what I expected with purchasing items, setting up surprises, writing rhymes clues. They were very professional, communicating regularly with me, keeping me updated on all the progress .I would highly recommend using this company because I have never had better experience with anyone in the area

    Ashley and her team planned my 27th Birthday BBQ + Knockerball Event. It was such a great experience working with TALMA! They were super professional and informative. Ashley came with great perspective on the design of the event and ensured it would be a great collaborative effort on making the day special for me and my loved ones! I definitely recommend TALMA for curating special events!

    I had a cupcake decorating party for my daughters 6th birthday. While Alysha was a tab late, everything was set up for the party on time. She was great with the kids and they all had a blast! It requires some patience to handle 12 screaming girls but Alysha was so kind. She cleaned up afterwards too. It was fantastic! Each child got a cute little apron as well and while their cupcakes weren't perfect, they loved sampling the frosting along and just had a good time.

    The "Classy Clown" did my granddaughters Birthday Party and all we cab say is WOW! The kids were in awe and the balloon and face painting was amazing. The kids will be talking about this one for a very long time. I think "The Classy Clown" was the best tutor I could have in passing the grandpa test.

    Using this service was a Godsend!!! There's enough stress alone getting married, These Je T'aime made it very easy for us. Their attention to what we wanted was incredible, Having periodical sit down meetings ensured accuracy in the planned details, And avoided any last minute problems. For those on a budget, This is the way to go!! There was simply no worry, They went above and beyond for our special day. Whether it was set-up at the Church, Or at the reception It was handled perfectly, Without having to check on various details, When they say Don't Worry, It's done, They mean it!! Besides the decoration aspect, These two Lady's showed compassion and understanding with simple conversation to help alleviate the stress and got us thru the Big event!! That says a lot. Je T'aime delivered exactly what was requested, And I would Highly recommend those planning a Wedding or other Party to allow Je T'aime to do the work for you. They Rock!!!

    Vanessa pulled together a fantastic birthday party with very little lead time. She came in for a site tour, kept us on task and pitched in when needed. The end result was just what we had imagined. The only thing I would do different is to think through an event budget and stick to it. That's just good practice in general. For overall services, guidance and quality of work, however, I'd recommend Vanessa in a heart beat.
